Detroit Tigers No. 1 draft pick Casey Mize pitched a no-hitter for the Erie Seawolves in his Double-A debut Monday night.
Mize threw 98 pitches while overpowering the host Altoona Curve. He hit the first batter of the game but got a groundball double play. He struck out seven and walked one, facing one over the minimum.
"Dominant," manager Mike Rabelo said. "No deep counts, the only blemish was a hit-by-pitch and a walk. He was absolutely electric tonight."
White House visit?
Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora is still undecided if he'll visit the White House next week when the team celebrates its World Series title there.
The Red Sox are scheduled to visit the White House on May 9 following a three-game series in Baltimore.
"I'll let you guys know when I decide," Cora said Monday before Boston's series opener against Oakland. "You guys don't have to worry about that one. I'll let you know."

"There's no timetable," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Monday. "We just have to get him built up again."
